Noritake Australiana, Blue Wren & Golden Wattle c1920s

Noritake Blue Wren - Golden Wattle

Early 20th Century Noritake design always captivates me with their bright, saturated colours.

Equally fascinating are the designs Noritake produced specifiably for the Australian market – previously I have posted about the charming “Kookaburra” design.

I recently came across a tea set in this design – “Blue Wren & Golden Wattle” which has the backstamp which was used in the late 1920s.

The blue wren has the same pink and blue hues used in one of the variations of the  Kookaburra design and again features the golden wattle flower. As far as I can deduce – the blue wren design pre dates the Kookaburra design by about a decade.
